If you've been itching to earn an "Heirloom" item, some of the rarest in the game, we've got the full rundown below – but it's not easy.
Apex Legends Heirloom Shards Guide
What are Heirloom Shards?
Heirloom Shards are consumable items that can be redeemed towards very rare "Heirloom" items with bespoke dialogue and banner options, as well as designs that mirror the legend that they were created for.
How to get Heirloom Shards
Heirloom Shards are found in Apex Packs, which are earned for ranking up or purchasable with real money. You only have a 1 in 500 chance of grabbing them though, but with each drop your shards are added to a total.
Once you reach the required amount, you can convert those shards into an heirloom item via crafting. Doing so will unlock that item, and you can then work towards your next one.
